    My name is Matthew Short and this might have been answered before but I'm trying to make an Assassin's Creed hidden blade.

    I have no real background in engineering so I'm at your mercy for help.

    I want to build the entire piece out of metal with a real blade and would like it to be as sleek as possible for a wall mounted piece. Although it will be in a case, I would like it fully functional so I can show people when they ask.

    It needs to be a dual action meaning spring loaded to pop out and lock and then spring loaded to pop back in and lock. I do not want it to be done with slinging my arm or gravity but with a flick of my wrist.

    There are tons of them on YouTube but NONE of them really explain how to build one. If anyone on this site want's to take this on as a challenge there is no time frame. I just need blueprints to build it.

    Thank you for your time and feel free to email me at juggalo.infantry@gmail.com with any advice or questions.

    I am not an engineer.
    I have not played assassin's creed.
    I have seen the trailers for them, so I'll go with that.

    For a hidden blade, you need the blade(1), the extrusion mechanism(2), the retraction mechanism(3), the catch mechanism(4), the release trigger(5), and the reinforcement(6).

    Design: The blade(1) has it's haft drilled out to make room for a small steel tube(6) to slide inside; the steel tube is connected to a cartridge of compressed CO2 or N2 gas(2); the other end of the tube is connected to the canister of gas via a spring-loaded turn-valve attached to the hand with a piece of cording(5); small flares at the base of the blade catch against a static hoop of metal(4); the blade may be retracted manually by releasing the pressure from the tube via a nub valve(3) at the base of the tube and pushing the tip of the blade against any other object to slide it back in place.

    This design is simplified by having no automatic retraction mechanism(3), a simplified catch mechanism(4), and by combining the extrusion mechanism(2) and reinforcement(6) into a single, depletable, replaceable natural mechanism.
